A Look Back at Last Year’s Summer at Delphi Seattle Trip
Every year during the Delphian summer program, students have the opportunity to go on weekend trips. One such trip was made up to Seattle Washington for a day of fun, learning, and new experiences. Watch the video of our journey.
Before winter break, we had a very special high school graduate, Korbin Springer!
Students and locals walked for the United Nations Human Rights Day to celebrate human rights and to bring local attention to the rights of all human beings across the earth. Not only did the walk go through the Riverfront City Park in Oregon’s state capital, Salem, people wrote their wishes for changes in human rights around the world and posted them on a board called The Wall of Change. After two hours of walking and singing, the day ended in a carousel ride which displayed a banner to further the discussion. It said “What are Human Rights? FIND OUT.” All in all, this effort for the furthering of human rights was highly successful and fun!
This Delphian student talks about what inspires him as an artist. He is both a musician and painter – two passions he was able to discover and pursue due to the Delphian art program.
Delphian Middle School and Upper School students joined 600 other students from schools all around Oregon at the Evergreen Aviation Museum for the museum’s first ever Living History Week. They had the opportunity to hear from World War II veterans and Prisoners of War, including a Navajo Code-Talker, Pearl Harbor survivors, a Freedom Rider, the highest living decorated American veteran, and many more heroes.
Students all around Oregon had a fantastic opportunity to learn about history from firsthand sources. Such knowledge is incredibly valuable, as American poet and novelist Robert Penn Warren expressed when he said “History cannot give us a program for the future, but it can give us a fuller understanding of ourselves, and of our common humanity, so that we can better face the future.”
The ribbon cutting at our recently remodeled Lower School has occurred! Check out our new, nature-themed spaces that are all just the right size for the young students who are using them.
